Abstract
Students and faculty at the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) are planning to design and build a battery using technologies that have already been called a potential game-changer. U.S. Army Capt. Andrew “Drew” Johannes of Stillwater, Okla., along with thesis advisors Assistant Professor Sebastian Osswald of the NPS mechanical and aerospace engineering and physics departments, and Visiting Professor Joseph Farmer of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, have begun working on a Semi-Solid Flow Cell (SSFC) battery, which they believe has the potential to radically change the way the military powers everything from forward operating bases in Afghanistan to warships at sea.
